FuZzy Dice And Bongos

Frank Zappa would have been 70 today. He was taken much too soon.

If anyone ever marched the beat of a different drummer, it was Zappa. He was the Howard Roark of music. He did it his way, and waited for the world to catch up. (He also smoked a lot--Ayn Rand would have liked that.)

He belonged to no genre. He played rock, jazz, modern classical, R&B and whatever else felt right at the moment.

He's been gone 17 years, but I still listen to his stuff all the time.
